Ship and Offshore Structures

This programme was developed following an increase in demand for design engineers who can design and assess new ships and offshore structures. It is designed for graduate engineers or those from related disciplines who will be introduced to ultimate strength, fatigue and design concepts for structural components of ships and offshore floating systems. The programme will provide students with knowledge of material behaviour together with factors influencing the dynamic behaviour of offshore installations.

Entry requirements

All students are admitted as prospective MChem Honours students.
The entry requirements differ depending on the course and are largely a reflection of whether the course carries single or dual professional accreditation. The grades specified should be understood as minimum entry requirements that may be raised at times of exceptional demand. If it is necessary to do this, the higher standard will be applied fairly to the complete applicant field in any given year.

Course modules

Modules: risers and mooring lines; dynamics of ships and floating offshore structures; reliability-based structural design and plated structures; ultimate strength of ship and shell structures; computational modelling and approximation in structural mechanics; computational modelling of non-linear problems in structural mechanics; materials engineering; group project; individual project.

Assessment methods

Research project.
